“Futureland”: Opening Night at the Harry Ransom Center exhibit

Guest blogger: Jules Brandon, KMFA-FM afternoon announcer and host of Pianoforte

Recently I had the opportunity to enjoy a glimpse of what the Harry Ransom Center has to offer at the Opening Night celebration of the new exhibit,  “I Have Seen the Future:  Norman Bel Geddes Designs America” (a.k.a. “Futureland”).

“FutureLand” is a retro-futuristic celebration for the fall exhibition I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America.  We got an early glimpse of  the exhibition,  entered a drawing for a Geddes-inspired prize package, and even got to bring our own vision of the future to life with the Toy Joy’s interactive “City of the Future.”

Others simply relaxed in the Design Within Reach outdoor lounge while enjoying refreshments.

It was a wonderful exhibit and a fun party! More photos can be seen on the HRC Flickr page (look for the Toy Joy city!).
